Not everyone that lives in the northern hemisphere enjoys a cold, white christmas year in year out and certainly those that have the pleasure of living in Africa, feel the need to treat themselves after a long year, to a bit of luxury when deciding on a christmas holiday destination. Here is a list of my top 4 african luxury hotels to book into these holidays
1. Hemingways Hotel, Nairobi Kenya
Colonial style architecture with lovely lush green rolling lawns would be how best to describe this Kenyan jewel which has recently been refurbished. Situated just over 10 km’s from the city centre and 20 km’s from Jomo Kenyatta International airport.
Expect to pay: $400 per night
2. The Table Bay, Cape Town, South Africa
This hotel ticks all the luxury boxes, its key selling point however is its fantastic location. Situated right next to the V&A Waterfront with views of the harbour and the famous Table Mountain.
Expect to pay: $450 per night
3. The Four Seasons Lodge, Serengeti, Tanzania
Ultimate luxury meets raw African bush. The Four Seasons Lodge in the Serengeti boasts elegantly furnished rooms, world class spa, African inspired cuisine and sweeping views of the african plains with roaming wildlife.
Expect to pay: $1800 per night (package dependent)
4. Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, Kenya
Breathtaking property with beautiful views of Mount Kenya. For all its beauty and splendor, the quality service and friendly staff make up many of the positive reviews of this hotel.
Expect to pay: $700 per night
